Podcast hosts Andrea Lepley and Juliana Mora interview 2019 alumna Madison Rios.

Hosts Andrea Lepley and Juliana Mora interviewed 2019 Communications Academy graduate and Blaze copy editor Madison Rios. Rios is a multimedia journalist with WKOW in Madison, Wisconsin. She returned to speak with journalism students, give advice and answer questions.

Mora and Lepley interviewed Rios for their podcast “Get a Load of This.”

“Madison helped me really get a peek in through what she does and part of the journalism world,” Mora said.

Rios discussed her experiences both in college and in her first year as a professional reporter with Introduction to Broadcast and Photojournalism students and on the podcast. Many of the stories she looked back on most fondly through her career were challenging to cover, but were also a passion project for her.

“Writing stories can be very difficult emotionally. Learning to detach from writing stories can be a good lesson to learn,” Lepley said.

Make sure to listen to Episode 4 today on Spotify, iHeart Radio, Amazon Music and Apple Podcasts.

Ava Smith, Copy Editor
Junior Ava Smith is in her first year of publications and is a co-copy editor for The Blaze yearbook.   Smith found her interest for publication in her sophomore year, when she took a photojournalism class. The class led her to find her passion of being in any area of the journalism field.   Smith plays on the Indian Trail softball team, which she has been a member of since her freshman year. She also helps out at any open house nights her school has, goes to after school events to keep up with the community and is a TA for her adviser, Mrs. Corbett.   In her free time, she likes to bake and play the piano. She also enjoys building Legos and spending time with her loved ones.   Although she is not sure where she wants to continue her studies after high school, she knows she wants to follow the journalism pathway.   “I can’t wait to see the final book this year,” Smith said. “The staff is so incredible and they’ve been working so hard, I just can’t wait.”
